and cnn international. there has been a perception that media, internationally, for many years has been dominated by cnn and bbc. i think there has been, particularly in the last 10 years, a situation where a lot of countries, including china, are saying, we need to have parts of this pie, if you will. we need to be able to present alternatives to what the bbc and what cn and and the big players are doing. host: 1 at person rights and, cctv does this. let's look at a show called 24 china and a recent story filed about asians in america. >> the u.s. asian population has risen at rates rarely reveled in america. it is a modern immigration wave that has sent agents from less than 1% of the population in 1965 to 18.2 million in 2011, a more than 543 -- increase according to a new service called "the rise of asian- americans." host: why is that story of interest? guest: that is from our correspondent in los angeles. a lot of stories involving asians and americans are part of the agenda of cctv news. the interesting survey about -- that that came out of was that the occasion-american communit

. and later at the american university in cairo. she has worked out of the rome bureau of cnn and beijing as a freelance editor and camerawoman, covering everything -- the seize of chechnya, the earthquake in turkey in 1999. to her left, c.j. chivers of "the new york times"" he is the war correspondent's war correspondent. he is known for his courage, resourcefulness on the battlefield, knowledge of tactics and strategy and finally for his expertise in weaponry, in particular, ubiquitous ak47 about which he has written a definitive biography. a fascinating book called simply, "the gun." after graduating from cornell university, he joined the marine corps, serving in the gulf war. he was honorably discharged as captain in 1994, went to columbia graduate school of journalism, worked at the providence journal in rhode island and joined the "new york times" in 1999. part of his legend there is that on september 11, he sprinted from police headquarters to ground zero, remaining at the site day in and day out for two weeks. abroad, he has had numerous assignments, including a four year stint as
believe on the thursday afternoon. a colleague of mine from cnn coined the phrase, dr. no finally got a yes. ron paul has been pushing this bill to audit the fed for quite some time and it did pass the house by a fairly partisan vote. i did not know the exact numbers of the top of my head. his son rand paul, senator from kentucky, is pushing the bill in the senate. as of now it is show it -- sort of an allied air issue for the senate and probably not going to receive a vote there unless senator paul -- he has been pretty tough in his fight so far. so, he may try to get a vote on it as an amendment to one of the bills that they will have to tackle in the next two to three months. host: from fox news, the final vote was 327-98. eight co-sponsors, democrats, actually voted against it. caller: ice -- guest: i stand corrected. a big win for dr. paul. probably one of his most and for the legislative victories so far. will become law? probably not. but the issue about the fed, its handling of the bailout, the role in the bailout of four years ago continues to resume with a very intense group
." a former actor, white house correspondent and interviewer post for cnn, he now serves as director of the school of media and public affairs of the george washington university. please welcome that f -- please welcome back frank sesno. [applause] >> how are you? thank you very much. i am happy to be back to host this wonderful series on the revolutions of the 21st century. the internet and social media represent the most remarkable and transform a technologies we can imagine, certainly since the creation of the automobile, the telephone, the light pole, the newspaper, just about anything we can imagine. in a few short years, it has become impossible to think of life without these technologies. they have become utilities in our lives. what lies ahead? where is this all taking us? where might we end up? i'm here with three guests who studied this topic and committed this topic on just about every angle, from communications, journalism, security, safety, commerce, innovation, and on and on it goes. we will get started. it is great to see you all. it is a pleasure to be here. i thought
, people noticed. all run the country, it was on cnn, msnbc, it was in the newspapers, and people started saying, what in the world is going on in virginia? not only does this get visibility, but one day, thanks to the extraordinary organizing of women, not only women in now, but throughout the women's movement in virginia, the day that the legislators were going to go to the house of delegates and vote, 1500 women lined the sidewalks and formed a conflict that the legislators had to walk past, standing arm in arm, silent, in a silent vigil watching them walk through. that is a mobilization that was practically overnight. this was fuelled by social me the at and by passion, and outrage at these exchange lists who are overreaching like i have never seen it at any time in my life. another mobilization that we did, when lisa brown stood on the floor of the house of representatives in michigan, objecting to yet another anti- reproductive rights bill, and at the end of her remarks, she said, mr. speaker, i am glad everybody is so interested in my vagina, but no means no. lisa brown was censure
to cnn the federal government overpaid $14 billion in unemployment benefits just last year. that means 11% of all jobless benefits paid out were not supposed to be paid to those individuals. those overpayments that should have gone to people in need were sent by government to those who didn't deserve any money. you see, not all payments are to honest people who are looking for jobs and are out of work. inmate grimminger's case is bad, but there's more. a convicted killer, murderer in a california prison was receiving at least $30,000 in unemployment checks. the murderer made sure that his family and his friends cashed his checks while he was locked up. so each month his family fraudulently cashed his $1,600 check which they would then deposit in his jail bank account. guess where it went next, mr. speaker? he shared the jail money with some of his low-life prison gang members while he was in the joint. there's more. the federal government reportedly sent a man $515,000 in payments over 37 years. 37 years, mr. speaker because he was supposedly unemployed. 37 years of unemployment benefits
recruiting. that's why the army spokesman on cnn said when they announced they were ending their 10-year, multidollar taxpayer funded relingtsship with nascar, quote, it was not a great investment. the navy pulled out. the marine corps pulled out of nascar years ago. yet the pentagon has paid one racing team, mr. earnhardt's team, $136 million in taxpayer funds for the national guard logo on his car and the name -- in the name of recruitment. this year, they're paying mr. earnhardt again $26.5 million to which the national guard has reported, this is what the guard told me, 20 qualified candidates expressing interest, zero, zero actual recruits. so over the past two year the national guard has spent more than $20 million in taxpayer funds on bass fishing tournaments. we're in a fiscal crisis. bass fishing is not national security. this congress is cutting money to needy families because we're in a fiscal crisis yet the pentagon is spending in excess of $80 million on nascar sponsorships, bass fishing, ultimate cage fighting and other sponsorships. it's a waste of taxpayer money, it doesn
news, nbc, abc, cnn, mns, fox business and -- msnbc, fox business. he's co-author of dick army, "give us liberty: a tea party manifesto." please welcome matt here to introduce c.l. bryant. [applause] >> how you guys doing? does anyone here believe in freedom? >> yeah! >> does anyone here think the government's spending too much money it doesn't have? >> yeah. >> ok. here's the test. does anyone think sometimes as frustrating as it is that maybe you have to beat the republicans before you can beat the democrats? [applause] ok. just wanted to make sure we are in the right place. later on today after lunch we are showing the colorado premiere of a movie that i am really proud of called "runaway slaves" and that will be showing right after lunch. and i got to tell you, money back guarantee, it's worth your time. it's powerful. you might get a little choked up, but you're definitely going to be fired up after you see this movie. please, if you can, stay for that movie. i first met c.l. on september 12, 2009. we had both walked from freedom plaza 1.3 miles up to the capitol for what turned
to interview her. the guardian, bbc, cnn, she became a bit of a celebrity in the journalism world. then one day in june a relative of hers posted on her blog that she had been kidnapped by state security or something like that. immediately people began to mobilize. they began to put together facebook pages to support her cause, creating avenue tars for people to news solidarity. some organized protests at the syrian embassies. y was very -- was very interested in finding people who knew her to find a sense of how much danger she might truly be in. as i started asking around i started getting messages from my contacts in syria and they were saying well, i'm part of the local gay community here and i never heard of here. others would say i haven't met her. each would pass me onto someone else. i got to the point i was saying does anyone know anyone who has met her in person? it final by -- finely got to the point where i contacted the reporter at the guardian who did the very first interview, interviewed her in person and he said what can you tell me about this person. what they told me is that t
publicationings including "washington post," cnn, hufferington post, financial times, "time" magazine, national journal, "daily beast." with that i think we'll invite your questions. >> i wanted to ask, recently as candidates visited virginia, that virginia could be -- is a big swing state but mostly because it's a recipient of big defense dollars. your survey would sort of disprove that headline i was wondering what your comments are on some of that coverage. >> it's important to remember that when you hear reporting about political activity, it doesn't necessarily mean that it represents public opinion. there are interests in virginia and those interests are being activated and those interests are making contributions to candidates and so on. but the individuals who are ultimately the voters, when you ask them to look at the big picture and give them the information, they come to pretty much the same conclusions. it's an interesting dynamic that in general people don't look out for themselves when they -- they are making judgments about public policy issues. but they will probably be influenc
on the white house detail for cnn. if you have somebody who looks like me with less care, that is my byounger brother. >> dad was upi? >> in its heyday. i remembered as a kid that we only had one car growing up so we would take my dad to work in the morning and the company afternoon. we parked and 14th street and i looked at the national press club that he would be sitting there typing away with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth and a bottle of whiskey in the drawer. >> we are about to invade your city. >> i can't wait. >> what do you hope we will remember about tampa? >> for most people coming to tampa, it is an untapped market. some of you in this room have never been to temple before so it is a mid-sized american city hosting an international event and other the olympics will be the most watched television this year. tampa is a place where i hope people walk away with a sense of a city i did not know anything about. it is a city i would like to potentially come and visit again and invest in. it is a really neat place. >> the convention itself will be in the tampa bay form. someone said
